Of course the immediate concern – for the victim of a Florida College student who has been negligently been injured as a result of a Florida automobile, bicycle, motorcycle or slip and fall accident – is to receive the appropriate medical attention. Often times the negligently injured Florida College student lacks the experience to make the right decisions and needs guidance at each step of the way.
The young man we mentioned in our prior blawg who was injured on his bicycle on the campus of the University of Florida had the extraordinary foresight to keep the phone number to the University of Florida’s Student Health Care Center, in his cell phone; a precaution that I would advise every college student to do immediately.
But what if the Florida College student requires medical attention beyond the campus clinic? What if insurance companies are calling your student and badgering them for information or attempting to get your student to sign a Release, which could cost them to lose many valuable rights?
It is very important to advise your college student to make contact with a concerned and skilled Florida personal injury attorney to properly and fully advise them as well as to immediately attempt to protect their rights and interests. The Florida personal injury attorney who takes this role seriously can act with a level and experienced mind and set out to act as a family surrogate to protect your loved one who has been injured while away at college.
